Let it puddle around my feet pool to my ankles tributary to our community sea rising tide of our despair.

About the Author
Thorn (they/them) of Lucid Tales specialises in fiercely tender revolution, radical self honesty and wild, queer love. They’re a previous Purbeck Valley slam champion, Hammer and Tongue veteran and Freeway Poet, and have been crowned the ‘monarch of the extended metaphor’. A hedonist queer with more genders than brain cells and more heart than sense, they bring decadent drag, drunken tales of debauched gods, and silly sausage energy to every smouldering performance.Their audio-based Bedtime Stories series can be found on the Lucid Tales YouTube channel, and their first book of short stories, ‘genre-fluid’ was released in 2020. Other works have been published by Unknown Magazine and Nebulous Magazine.
About the Artist
Sean Kirkpatrick is an Australian artist and creator of comics such as “Baddies”. They also collaborated on the short graphic novel “The Days.”
They are a part of the queer band Baby Shower, where they play an orange bass guitar and channel much energy into sick bass lines and jumping about.
Sean likes it when their orange juice comes right up to the rim of the glass and doesn’t overflow. They have fond memories of art classes after school, which may or may not have led to graphic design and stellar art skills (and killer skills at doing winged eyeliner).
